Facebook Now Brings App Store For Mobiles, Tablets

Posted on June 9, 2012. Filed under: Mobile, Technology | Tags: , , , , |

Users get to access their favorite Facebook application as well as a plethora of popular applications for Android and iOS.


Facebook has launched an application store for mobile phones and tablets. The app store allows mobile devices todownload and play Facebook based application right on the mobile devices itself.
Facebook is beginning to roll out the app Center to its nearly 1 billion users, so theycan find games and other applications with social components more easily.
Facebook app center is a one stop shop for Facebook applications as well as applications based on Android or iOS and users will be able to search and read descriptions about these applications right from the Facebook app centre.
While the Facebook apps will be available from the app centre itself, for Android and iOS apps, user will be directedto the respective app stores.
Currently, many people are introduced to Facebook apps in the form of sometimes annoying requests from their friends such as for Poker Partners, Scrabble Buddies orneighbors on virtual farms. Those requests haven’t necessarily matched a user’s specific interests.
But that will change with this new app center, which will initially feature about 600 Facebook apps, mostly games,reviewed by the company to meet quality standards. Games, such as Zynga’s”CityVille” and Electronic Arts’ The Sims, are the most popular types of apps on Facebook.
What Facebook is banking on is the personalisation that it can offer to users, by recommendations to users, people will find new types of applications beyond games, along with games that are more interesting to them.
“We spend all day, every daybuilding a platform (so that) great social games and apps can exist,” said Matt Wyndowe, product manager for apps and games at Facebook. But a common question has long been whereto find them. “Up until now, we haven’t had a great answer tothat question.”
Facebook said that on mobile devices, the app center won’t compete with other app stores, such as Apple’s or Google’s. Rather, the app center will send users to those other stores to download the programs. People can also get mobile apps from their regular computers by using a feature called “send to mobile.”

Is Facebook Down? Yes For Some. Site Outages Lasted Over Two Hours

Posted on June 1, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , |


“Let me tell you the difference between Facebook and everyone else, we don’t crash EVER!” – ‘Mark Zuckerberg’, The Social Network. Not quite. Facebook has been offline or slow to load for some users around the world for over two hours. Reports started flooding in to Twitter at roughly 4:26pm PST todaywith many users quipping that “Facebook is down. Just like its stock price.”
Despite some who lost service regaining it temporarily, two hours in DownForEveryoneOrJustMe confirms the outage continues for portions of Facebook’s 900 million users, though others have had no trouble logging on.
We’re awaiting a response from Facebook on the cause.
Similar to Facebook’s IPO, which was largely chronicled with tweets rather than the social network itself, Facebook users are turning to Twitter to vent their frustration with the downtime. The site so rarelyencounters loading problemsthat the outage has come asquite a shock to some, whereas Twitter’s short butfrequent hiccups have come to be expected. Today’s outage could be do to a coordinated hacking attempt,or just some Facebook-caused technical glitch
Facebook goes down, U.S. workforce productivity suddenly spikes for the firsttime since 2004.—

Despite the jokes, Facebook was actually up $1.41 / service have now regained it, though there are still reports of outages.
Update 6:26pm PST : Looks like things weren’t quite fixed. 2 hours in and some users in the US and around the world are still experiencing outages, including those who regained service around 6:00pm.
Update 8:00pm PST : Finally outage reports have let up and it looks like Facebook is stable again.
As Jesse Eisenberg fumed during his fictional portrayalof ‘Mark Zuckerberg’ in Aaron Sorkin’s dramatized history of Facebook, ‘The Social Network’:
“If those servers are down for even a day, our entire reputation is irreversibly destroyed! Users are fickle, Friendster has proved that. Even a few people leaving would reverberate through the entire userbase.

The users are interconnected, that is the whole point. College kids are online because their friends are online, and if one domino goes, the other dominos go,don’t you get that?

Honestly, Facebook has been remarkably reliable over the last few years, even as its user base swells. But hopefully the site’s engineering team doesn’t mine sipping on a Caribbean piña colada while they sort things out.
